Sunflower Bean - Easier Said

Showcasing different shades, it’s the trio’s finest moment to date.

Until now, Sunflower Bean were content with plunging into new depths with a psychedelic swarm. Hype’s followed the trio’s every step like there’s an incoming stampede, and first work ‘Human Ceremony’ is looking to go beyond a simple justification of all that talk. ‘Easier Said’ is less a validation, more a completely new lease of life for the group’s already fledging career. Gone are the thick, sludgy bass parts and saw-toothed aesthetics. Instead, Julia Cumming leads a finely-tuned, dreamy piece that bears resemblance to DIIV’s softer moments, or early Beach Fossils. Instead of jumping on an escapism bandwagon, however, there’s a tenderness at play to this song. “Easier said than done / I heard you right the first time,” sings Cumming, every word delivered with a newfound purpose. They’re showcasing different shades this time round, and it’s Sunflower Bean’s finest moment to date.
